Pursuit Boats To Debut In Australia

Gold Coast will be home to the latest American premium fishing and family boat brand Pursuit launching in Australia this summer. Cobalt Boats of Australia has been appointed the national distributor partnering with the prestigious US brand.

Pursuit has been building offshore vessels for over 40 years and was part of the Tiara family until being purchased recently by Malibu and Cobalt. The line starts at 23ft and has models through to 40ft in centre console, cabin, open bow and hard top offshore hulls.

“We know how the team in Australia have grown Cobalt to be the largest export market outside of the USA so we look forward to having the same success with Pursuit,” Pursuit Boats Vice President of International Sales, George Hetzel says.

Owner of Cobalt Boats of Australia, Brett Thurley, says his team are very excited to be bringing the leader in the saltwater outboard fishing segment to Australia. Pursuit is a boutique premium offshore brand that all fishing aficionados know well. Of course they are in the conversation with Grady White and Boston Whaler as the world’s top saltwater brands. We happen to think that Pursuit excels both other brands in hand-built quality due to their focus on engineering, fit and finish rather than mass production.

We are looking to showcase Pursuit’s family versatility with their very popular crossover DC range from 23ft to 36ft, which allows you to have open bow seating, offshore fishing hull characteristics, seating for 12 people in a huge cockpit, a marine toilet and hardtop enclosure with the capabilities to tow watersports as well.

“The Pursuit boat is a premium offshore fishing boat that has crossed over into a versatile family boat while also offering pure sportfishing models in its range,” Brett says. “Dad gets to fish, you can tow the kids for water sports, and there’s plenty of seating for mum and guests to sit back and relax, making the Pursuit a suitable boat for the whole family.

“We cater to a clientele with a range of boating needs and high expectations so our Pursuit partnership will give clients another high-performance boating option in the fishing and offshore space,” Brett continues. “Adding the Pursuit brand rounds out the range we offer covering family bowriders, premium pontoon boats and now a high-end offshore range with a fishing bent.”

Pursuit Boats will have retail locations on the Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne. We have experienced fishing gurus in our team on the Gold Coast and Victoria who are eager to start demonstrating the range and welcoming new owners to the family.
